Hi,we are on Rosehearty transmitter and when I retune my tv it shows signal quality is very good,the problem arises when we switch on Humax box on one tv it seems to disrupt the free view signal on the other TVs ,I think that if I upgrade aerial which is in loft it would maybe sort out problem,this has only happened since the most recent Chang in signals in October,can you give any advice on type of aerial for this transmitter.

Regards

Robert Irvine

Robert Irvine:

In all locations you now need a wideband aerial fitted.

As you have not provided the full post code requested, we have no idea what the expected reception conditions are like at your location, please provide that full post code.

The issue wil turning on your Humax box could well be that the cables are running too close together. It has been noticed by others that HDMI cables can affect other connected devices. So move everything as far apart as is reasonably possible and try again.
